Steelers’ Antonio Brown practices on Monday

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

In a sign that star wide receiver Antonio Brown will be able to go for the Pittsburgh Steelers this upcoming weekend, he got in a practice with the team on Monday.

Brown might not be ready to declare himself a go for the AFC Divisional Playoffs against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but getting a practice in early in the week is most definitely some good news.

Brown suffered a partially torn calf muscle against New England back in Week 15 and missed the final two regular season games.

It’s highly important that Pittsburgh has Brown on the field against a Jaguars defense that yielded the fewest passing yards in the NFL during the regular season and picked off Ben Roethlisberger a whopping five times back in Week 5.

In 14 games this season, Brown recorded 101 receptions for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns. He’s one of the most-productive receivers in NFL history. It goes without saying his importance to the Steelers is pretty high up there.
